How to Play Lotto Plus

What is Lotto Plus?

Our Lotto Plus games are two exciting additional draws, which you can enter your Lotto numbers into for just €1 per panel.

The top prize for Lotto Plus 1 is €1 Million and the top prize for Lotto Plus 2 is €250,000!

Also, when you play Lotto Plus you will automatically be entered into the Lotto Plus Raffle Draw for a chance to win €500. For every Lotto Plus line you play you will get a four-digit Raffle number. These numbers will run from 0000 to 9999. If your Raffle four digit number matches the Raffle number drawn you win €500 in that draw. 

Draw days are every Wednesday and Saturday and the draws can be seen live on RTÉ One at around 8pm.

 

How to Play Lotto Plus

It couldn't be easier! Once you've marked your numbers (or ticked the Quick Pick box) for the main Lotto game, you can enter those same numbers in our Lotto Plus draws by simply marking the Lotto Plus box on the top left hand corner of your playslip. You can also ask for Lotto with Lotto Plus Quick Picks.

 

Playing Online

If you haven't already played Lotto online, you can register here;

-Never miss a draw!

-Save & Play your numbers automatically!

-Have your numbers automatically checked!

As with a playslip for a Lottery agent, you need to fill in at least two lines on the online playslip on your screen. You can either:

  • key in your chosen numbers 1 to 47 or
  • click the QP button for automatic Quick Pick numbers or
  • select My Last Ticket (if you've played before) or
  • go to My Favourite numbers and choose from your list of saved favourite numbers


Make sure Lotto Plus is selected, choose the number of Advance Play draws you want your numbers to play in (one, two, four or eight) and click Play Now. You'll have the chance to check that your numbers are correct before you press the purchase button, and hey presto! You're in.

We'll send you an email if you win. For good measure we'll even email you draw results if you ask us to.

You also can check your purchases at any time using your online account.

 

Lotto Plus Raffle Draw

We have introduced a Lotto Plus Raffle Draw. When you play Lotto Plus you will automatically be entered into the Lotto Plus Raffle Draw for a chance to win €500.

For every Lotto Plus line you play, you will get a four-digit Raffle number. These numbers will run from 0000 to 9999. If your Raffle four digit number matches the Raffle number drawn you win €500 in that draw.

The winning Lotto Plus Raffle Draw four-digit number will be announced on the Lotto draw on Wednesday and Saturday nights. It will be available on lottery.ie with the Lotto draw results

 

Lotto Advance Play

 

Lotto Advance Play means that you can play up to a month's worth of Lotto and Lotto Plus draws in advance. Perfect if you're going away or can't get to a shop or play online. Just tick the Advance Play box for two, four or eight draws, whichever suits best. The ticket you get will show the number of draws you're in and what dates apply.

Advance Play will always include the next Lotto draw (and Lotto Plus draws if you decide to play). If you win a prize in any of the draws you can claim it in the usual way. You'll get an exchange ticket to cover any draws left on your Advance Play.

 

Important Stuff

If you've bought your ticket from a National Lottery agent, look after it. It's your only valid record for claiming a prize.

Across each line are the six numbers from the individual panels you filled in, or random ones if you went for a Quick Pick. If you chose numbers instead of a Quick Pick, make sure they're the numbers you wanted before you leave the agent's premises.

Don't get caught for time!
Bear in mind that you won't be able to buy your Lotto ticket immediately before or while the game is actually on. Terminals are closed at 7.45pm and don't reopen until after the draw at 7.58pm is finished. Any tickets bought for the next draw will be eligible in that draw, right up to terminal closing. If you play online sales close at 7.40pm.

You can reuse your Playslip.
If you like to play the same set of numbers every week just keep the playslip somewhere handy. You don't need to complete a fresh one each time you play. If you play online, your account will remember your last played numbers and you can save favourite numbers too.
